    Dear Green family,
    Please accept my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and I’d like to share where I found help at such a time as this when this enemy death took my entire family. I found much comfort and hope in what Jehovah Gods word the Bible says at John5:28,29 for there we’er told we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and Isaiah25:8 states that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. These scriptures along with others help me cope with my loss because now I know I’ll see my family again. I wanted to share this with you at this difficult time hoping this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you’ll feel free to let me know if this has helped. Sincerely, GM

    I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the family of Richard. Right now there’s no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However 2 Corinthians 4:7 says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal”, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us, keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. 2 Corinthians 1:3 describes our Creator as, “… the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.
